The most common, bizarre items left in a Seattle Uber

Say what you want about the conveniences of modern Seattle living, as least no one has left behind an 8-week-old Chihuahua in their Uber.

That’s just one of the more unique items left behind in an Uber car, as chronicled by the rideshare company. While it may be surprising that someone may leave a Harry Potter wand or beard oil in their rideshare, it is even more shocking that those items were not forgotten in Seattle (where there are plenty of hairy Harry Potterheads).

In all honesty, the items that were found neglected in Seattle Ubers over the past year were a little underwhelming. Other cities reported finding a salmon head in the car (yeah, not Seattle either!), a pack of hair and a brush shaped like a foot, a Babe Ruth signed baseball, or a bejeweled Elvis cape. The best Seattle could apparently do, according to Uber, was a Christmas stocking filled with hot sauce and golf tees — which, admittedly, is a fairly odd combination.

Perhaps it’s because Seattle doesn’t even rank on Uber’s list of most forgetful cities (get your act together East Alabama and Gallup, NM). Relatively speaking, Seattle is less likely to leave behind a propane tank or a fish tank complete with water and fish.

There’s still time in 2019, however. I’m sure we can come up with something characteristic of Seattle to really make a mark this year. Perhaps 20lbs of Ezell’s in Dick’s to-go bags. A mustache comb. Or 50 Funko Pops driven down from Everett. Maybe three severed salmon heads (just for good measure).
